With PLN 5,000 to spend on a gaming PC, we already have a lot to choose from. In practice, this combination will guarantee us uncompromising gameplay in FHD even with a 240 Hz screen in e-sports games or at the highest detail in larger titles. It will also handle 1440p very well.

The price cuts for AMD Ryzen processors from November 2022 are still valid, and the competition still can’t fight, so the recommended computer for PLN 5000 is again the same processor. Card prices have leveled off a bit, but disks and memory are much cheaper. Basically, the whole set turned out to be as fresh as the previous month and we made only some qualitative changes – if you are interested in what exactly, we invite you to get acquainted with the sixth proposal of the list of recommended PC sets – a PC of just over 5000. zlotys.
Recommended computer for PLN 5,000 in March 2023
Total PLN 5066.01.000 PLN
The component price difference between the above offer and the previous listing is due to usage Configurator designation on the website komputronik.pl – With this tool, the prices of many components are lower than when you buy them yourself. All computers that we suggest come from this component.
Other than a computer up to PLN 5000, computers are recommended in the popular price ranges:
What is worth knowing about the recommended PC for PLN 5000?
The amount of PLN 5000 allows in practice a little more flexibility when choosing components. We can turn here to the more expensive Intel Core i5-12400F, which also requires a more expensive motherboard, but for now it will not imply a huge difference in performance compared to the Ryzen 5600, which was also chosen a month ago – the same number of cores and threads It has slightly worse performance than a single core, which you can basically compensate for with the unlocked multiplier on AMD processors. The Intel Core i5-13400F should have changed the situation here, but at the price of PLN 1100 there is nothing to look for in our listings.
In combination with the processor, we get very efficient and not as loud as in the case of Intel processors, air cooling. This is an item that could be replaced in the future, but for starters, it could still be on this factory version. The motherboard we chose this time was the Gigabyte B550M DS3H – a model with the same functionality, but less visually appealing than the Gigabyte B550M Aorus Elite, which was chosen a month earlier. It provides a decent set of connectors (including 4 USB 3.2 10Gbps) and the ability to expand RAM and disk space (also by adding another M.2 disk).
Another problem is the choice of graphics card. The model we’re referring to is one of the cheapest variants available with the RTX 3070 system. Paying extra for more cooling would increase the work culture a bit, but in our case there wasn’t room for that in the budget. This model gets bonus points for matching the manufacturer to the motherboard. If you are looking for savings, the recently launched RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X memory could be an alternative here. We tested it in December and it turned out to be slightly (10%) lower than the RTX 3070 in this group, while being a significantly cheaper offering.
The RTX 3070 itself is the fastest card of the RTX 3000 family, using GDDR6 memory, which is 8GB. The manufacturer does not overclock this version of the card, but in general, the RTX 3070 graphics cards are known for their great overclocking potential. It’s worth noting that 8GB of vRAM is the optimal amount of vRAM for FHD or QHD playback, though in the latter case you’ll usually need the help of DLSS.
NVIDIA RTX graphics card adds features like DLSS, DLAA and Reflex to the game – it’s a lot more than meets the eye
And what is this DLSS? – you will ask. Well, this function increases performance without any visible loss of image quality (and in the “Quality” mode it is even improved in some places). We will also have DLAA at our disposal, which works quite similarly, but focuses on improving image quality without increasing performance. Ultimately, in select e-sports games, NVIDIA Reflex technology will reduce screen latency.
All of the above (plus the NVIDIA Broadcast app, which will allow us to improve broadcast quality using the hardware camera and microphone, if we decide to do so) distinguishes the NVIDIA GPU card in this segment from the competition from AMD. So is performance in games that support Ray Tracing, with the RTX 3070 often competing with the fastest Radeons.
Admittedly, an SSD isn’t critically important to a gamer, but remember that a gamer is also a human and uses the computer outside of gaming, so choosing a cheaper SSD isn’t a good option. The tweak from our offer uses a new controller that allows you to use RAM, which significantly speeds up the processes performed by the system (and games). It also uses TLC chips, which means less speed drop when full than cheaper options with QLC memory. The only thing that can be changed here is its capacity, but this is a matter of individual preferences. A nice change and improvement over combos from previous months is the larger capacity—SSDs are now so cheap that we can afford to pay extra for a 1TB model—and that’s enough for the system, apps (including updates), and even a dozen big games.
In contrast, the 16GB of GoodRAM (a binary that scrolls through most PCs recommended for February 2023) will allow you to use the computer for stress-free gaming and streaming. Granted, Ryzen wouldn’t ignore a slightly faster clock speed, but it’s not critical. However, if you have a slightly higher amount at your disposal, then it’s worth paying extra for it (for example, for RAM with a clock speed of 3600 MHz).
Already in the recommended computer set for PLN 4,000, we drew your attention to the need to ensure good air circulation in the housing, so once again the choice of the proven Genesis IRID 503 ARGB should come as no surprise. Since we chose a not very large (physically) graphics card and an mATX motherboard, it would still be the perfect choice, especially in terms of price. Four pre-installed 120mm fans in this case ensure excellent air circulation, and at the same time beautifully illuminate the entire case.
The last, but not the least important element, the power supply, was also chosen taking into account the compact size of the entire set, which is why it is a model with modular cables. This means that unused cables from the drive discs and redundant cables to power the graphics card can be left in the cardboard box, rather than making it difficult to keep the case tidy (and allow airflow). Its 600W power will perfectly satisfy all the components, although in this case it is unlikely to replace the card with a top-end model in the future (only the equivalent of the 250W RTX 3070 of new generations).
The card testing we did at the premiere allows us to estimate the sheer performance of the RTX 3070 proposed here. However, it’s also worth scouring the YT platform for tests of a similar configuration (to the one recommended here) – sometimes a game can be more CPU or GPU dependent, and our tests comparing components in sterile conditions won’t reflect the speed. completely actual. Here are examples of group tests with roughly the same configuration in two convenient minutes.

The video comes from the Ancient Gameplays YouTube channel.
As you can see, if you are looking for a gaming PC, you have come to the right place. With a fast graphics card, we can not only play in Full HD but also in 1440p, you can expect high performance. We will nonchalantly write that it could be the best computer (for computer games) at a price of up to PLN 5000 🙂
Will this gaming PC for PLN 5000 handle something more than games?
naturally! The presence of the previous generation 12-thread Ryzen 5 makes this kit an incredibly versatile design, and therefore also highly performant in applications other than gaming. Working in Adobe package, CAD applications, video editing or even Unreal Engine graphics engine works very smoothly on it. Support for calculations using CUDA cores, and in newer implementations also RT cores, is a huge advantage over the alternative, which will be a bundle with the Radeon RX 6800. The generally recommended set for PLN 5000 will perfectly cope with almost any task, even in the hands professionals.
A computer is one thing, but depending on the situation other products may also be needed, such as a monitor, keyboard, mouse and other peripherals – of course you will also find them in the store www.computronik.pl. However, what may be particularly important, and what we often forget when assembling a PC, is:
That’s right – without a system, both your gaming PC and your work PC won’t be of much use. Let’s also remember that Windows 10 can be upgraded to Windows 11 for free (the process is completely automatic). In addition, store employees can also be asked to add an assembly service – then we will receive the computer ready for work (the system will also be installed if we add it to the shopping cart).
